For the first time in 31 years, OMG has made the difficult decision to move our quarterly face-to-face meeting to a virtual format. The spread of COVID-19 has made it too risky for our members and guests to travel to the meeting and congregate for five days. Our quarterly meetings remain the best formats to advance our work and we hope to continue the important work in progress. To facilitate this, we have established a single calendar of record in the Members Area with all the sessions taking place and links to their agendas and dial-in information.

March 23-27, 2020 - RESTON, VA

Hyatt Regency Reston

The OMG Technical Meeting provides IT architects, business analysts, government experts, vendors and end-users a neutral forum to discuss, develop and adopt standards that enable software interoperability for a wide range of industries. Attend an OMG Technical Meeting to influence the direction of future standards work, hear from industry experts, network with your peers and be among the first to know what will be cutting edge tomorrow.

Information Days--one or two-day in-depth events on a specific area of interest--are held during each Technical Meeting and are a great way to get training and learn about standards and related practices, methodologies & technologies.
